,000 tons which is the weight of the u.s. space station out in outer space. i covered katrina and the debris buildup in katrina, we interview the new york city fire chief and former fire chief that oversaw 9/11 and also the chief of sanitation, this clean-up is bigger than 9/11 and bigger than katrina. what we're seeing throughout the day, 1800 trucks, sanitation trucks working around the clock, full tilt since sandy struck and removing garbage and debris to bring it out of state into pennsylvania and basically you will see publicly traded companies bidding on it, private companies, garbage companies bidding on it because as you know one man's trash is another man's treasure. we will be doing live updates throughout the day. liz: the concept of rebuilding is a twist on the broken windows theory. i am making a stretch, but hopefully there is some type of silver lining from all of this. from sandy to sliding for the fiscal cliff, my next guest says it is time to take risk off the table and protect your portfolio. david joy, risk away, the chief market strategist with sixth thirty-one billion d
of katrina because he knew how to get the job done. what do you think of that? when parties get their butts kicked like democrats did in '72, republicans did in '64, when they thought they had -- well, those races didn't look good to begin with, but right now what do you do when you're in a party leadership position? >> if they don't adhere to what bobby jindal is talking about, the senator from new hampshire. if they don't understand haley barbour, i can assure you democrats are really going to get that message and, believe me, if democrats organized the red state like they did in ohio this time around or like they did in florida this time around or like they did in one or two other states this time around, those red states would send the numbers that nancy pelosi needs to become speaker again. and that's going to happen if the republicans keep thinking like mitt romney. >> you know, that's the question, ashley, and that is as you see the demographic changes, younger voters tend to be more liberal. a lot of hispanic people moving into the country having a lot of kids and voting and being c
. we had katrina years ago. there are things that will disrupt the economy. 9/11 was an extraordinary case. but we have a very resilient economy. we've had one for hundreds of years. and the fact that they can't get along for the month of january is not going to torpedo the economy. >> so i want to make clear, he wants to see a deal made. but he says, you have to be willing to go past december 31st. if you need to, you have to make every attempt to reach a deal. but he says, quote, don't roll over and give away the store. he sees the president in his second term being able to hold a very hard line. bottom line, you know where he stands on taxes. he wants them much higher. >> talking about taxes, how much higher? >> that's the question, getting specifics. i asked him that on capital gains taxes, money made off of investment, but also on income taxes for regular people. take a listen. >> are you saying there's no taxation level that's too high? whether it's capital gains or investments or income? >> we certainly prospered with capital gains rates, more than double what they are currentl
katrina, their next stop could be a used car lot. "if it was from new jersey and sold right after the storm, i'd walk away." damaged cars may be resold, cleaned up and title transfered. most states keep their own records of a vehicle'' history, but not all of them. "missouri can wipe clean a vehicle's history when title changes." so used car buyers are warned to look for clues, particularly exposure to salt water. "it'll wick its way up, evaporate, but the salt will remain and corrode the car." "there may be a smell of mold and maybe even twigs and leaves under the hood." the watchdog group consumers for auto reliability and safety suggests searching information on a car though this website: "vehicle history-dot-gov." it's required that all total loss vehicles are to be reported to this federal database within 30 days. some predict that increased demand for used cars in the storm's aftermath and the relatively low number of new cars sold during the recession may lead to a spike in late- model used car prices, a jump that could be seen all along the east coast. just one month after

government. really it is only borrowing the money. that's what they did in katrina. they borrowed up to $20 billion. they blew through 18 billion in katrina. they have 3 billion left and 2.9 billion left. that will go through so quickly in new york and new jersey we're running up to a he had did line here. melissa: when i hear them say they will run out of money does it make a difference? it is your money, my money our audience's money. it is taxpayer dollars. what difference does it make whether it comes from congress or fema? it must matter. >> it almost what fema is doing, microcosm what the federal government does. it prints it and goes into more deficit spending. that is what fema is doing. they don't have the money. they will not be able to pay back 18 billion they already owe. it is kind of fungible. it is all really the system but congress needs to address this. we can't keep on doing this. we can't keep on bailing out fema and saying everything will be fine. we'll plug a hole here or there. melissa: we don't want to leave people who need help. >> no. melissa: are they out of money

their. we have a record of helping people out in those disasters. katrina, there were big mistakes made. there was a tremendous amount of money that was wasted down there. they had a request for $10 billion, i supported that. then, they wanted $58 billion. i asked for the plans. i want to see the spreadsheet, i want to see the support documents. i want to see the adding machine tape. if it is not that, i want to see the dart board. i found out the next morning when i got the email, when joshua bolton gave me the plan. in that was included 300,000 trailer houses in the original plan, 270,000 of which were back ordered. there were plans for medications of future disasters. there were opportunists in the katrina disaster, and we know there was $1.4 billion of that that was wasted with duplicates social security numbers. that is something, and experience of us who were there with katrina. i am asking the governors of the state to submit to congress a complete plan on not only were these resources need to go, but what kind of protections are there so they go the right place. that gets me a l
for his handling of the recovery in the wake of hurricane katrina. so you have the republican governors getting things done and providing a model of how they can transition. >> on the map right now california is reading blue in terms of the gubernatorial leading, but california, for instance, has had a whole series of republican governors. we have pennsylvania. we have new jersey, as you just mentioned. are all of these republican governors successful for very different reasons? >>. >> there's a whole swath of policy interests. and another thing that you can look at with the republican gubernatorial is diversity. you have hispanic governors in nevada. they won election of 2010. susanna martinez who got rave reviews for the convention speech at the the republican national convention. you see the republican wing in congress being very, very white. a lot of males dominating the caucus. on the governor's side you have a lot of hispanic and indiana-american governor es showing the way. >> you make the point that four of the five women serving as governors in 2013 are republicans. you look at
the katrina case, but a hard, hard case to win. it's an act of god. we set up and were properly set up an ordinary storm, but not something like this. 100 year storm. >> when you look at the cases dealing with katrina. do you think they have a pretty strong case, that they're not ultimately going to lose this? >> well, i think the utilities can put a strong defense on the board. the defense being we didn't anticipate a storm of this magnitude hitting the east coast of the united states. e-mail yonz of dollars were recovered in many suits against utilities, marinas, the u.s. army corps of engineers, huge numbers of class actions filed during the course of that litigation. bp, of course, just settled today in a criminal case. i wouldn't say that, you know, the long island people and the new jersey people are going to lose. they have got to prove that this was gross nelgs, that they should have anticipated a storm of this magnitude, and weren't properly prepared. >> also, breach of contract. you mentioned that as well. how did they do that? >> well, whenever you sign up with the utility c
out for them. this is something we saw after hurricane katrina after multiple walsh damages in this country. you tend to see cars make their way back out into the supply. you have to be vigilante about it. you can check for the car's vin number. there are experiences and i've talked to people who bought cars where inside the car they found two different vin numbers. that's a dead giveaway that you're dealing with a car that more than likely has been in an accident or faced water damage. go to carfax.com to check these things. you can check for water in the head lights and check for corrosion. that's a dead giveaway there was sea water involved in hurricane sandy and that's a corrosive item. >> if you think i can get a refurbished car for a good deal. >> not a good deal. corrosion inside your engine, it will eventually prevent your engine from running. >> because of the saltwater >> sea water is corrosive and wreaks havoc on the engine among multiple other parts. if you can prevent from driving that type of car that's what you want going forward. >> does insurance cover water
's association and he was able to gain a claim for his leadership in the wake of hurricane katrina and ed indication reform. they are setting a model for how republicans can talk about the agenda in the future. jon: one of romney's arguments he made it late in the game, one of his arguments was hey i was a republican governor in a democratic state and worked with a democratic legislature to get things done. >> romney didn't talk about his central legislative achievement, healthcare reform because it was a controversial issue with the conservative base. what you're seeing is that republican governors are taking up conservative reforms, they are making them more phral atable to be beyond the 47%. these are the types of reforms, education reform, entitlement reform that will be on the agenda in the next four years and it will be something that republicans need to be come forthable talking about for the presidency in 2016. jon: you say there is a huge chasm between republicans on capitol hill and the republican governors, why? >> some of it is just the diversity of opinion and experiences tha

katrina, there were big mistakes made, a tremendous amount of money wasted, there was not a planned to spend it. they came with a request of $10.5 billion and i supported that. it lasted one week. they came back asking for 50 billion more dollars. 1.8 billion for the corps of engineers. i asked for the plan. and finally, i went right down through the path and i said i want to see your spreadsheet, the documents. if it is not that i want to see the dart board that you might have thrown in the dark at. i think they actually did for a dart figuratively speaking and it ended up on $50 billion for fema. i found out, at 5:30 2:00 a.m., i got the e-mail, he promised me would give the plan on how they got to the number. in that was included -- 300,000 a trailer houses, 270,000 of which were backward, not built yet, $65 million in the planet's four, get this time mitigation of future disasters. there were opportunists in the katrina disaster. in a the result least $1.4 billion of that that were wasted. and that to divorce lawyers and cana.to planunta i am asking for complete plan, not only w
had hurricane sandy which disrupted the economy for a period. we had katrina many years ago. there are things that will disrupt the economy. i mean, 9/11, you know, was an extraordinary case. but we have a very resilient economy. we've had one for hundreds of years. and the fact that they can't get along for the month of january is something that's not going to torpedo the economy. >> one of the things he wants to see is significantly, quote, significantly higher taxes for wealthy americans. you heard dan lothian talking about it. what does he mean? he told me double capital gains tax, 30% capital gains on investments, not out of the question at all, income tax 50% plus, not out of the question. he wants to see a very different tax system than we have right now. >> one of the big problems i thought was interesting that he said was health care still. >> yes. >> he called it the -- of our economy. >> i'm so glad you saw that, zoraida. he said we spend 2.6 trillion in health care costs. he said he supports president obama but obama care didn't change things that much. we have a
, the united states of america. that's why when there was destruction in new orleans with katrina, in florida, in joplin, missouri or crop destruction in the midwest, i came along with other colleagues to support those communities. i viewed it as my time to stand with my fellow americans in distress. now it's time for my fellow americans to stand with new jersey. new jersey has been battered but we are not broken. we're stronger and more united in our efforts to work together to recover, rebuild and recommit ourselves to uniting around our common concerns and shared values rather than divided by our differences. that's the lesson we learned, and together we will rebuild and the garden state will bloom once again. with that, mr. president, i yield the floor and observe the absence of a quorum. the presiding officer: the clerk will call the roll. quorum call: quorum call: quorum call: quorum call: the presiding officer: the senator from illinois. mr. durbin: i ask consent the quorum call be suspended. promise without objection. mr. durbin: -- the presiding officer: without objection. mr. durbin
